Young Jeezy got verbally breezy on the airwaves recently telling Power 106 FM’s Big Boy that the beef between him and Rick Ross got “handled.”
“So me and [Ross] never really seen each other face to face and I just felt like he spoke, I spoke, and that was basically it. But at the end of the day, it’s been going on for a while so I just felt like if it was to be handled, it should have been handled there. We either gon’ get past it or keep moving. So in my words, I just feel like a lot of these cats are actor rappers. And I’m Jeezy—they could never be me. That’s just pretty much that,” Jeezy said in the interview.
The comments follow an altercation that took place during the 2012 B.E.T. Hip-Hop Awards in Atlanta on September 29. Young Jeezy’s and Rick Ross’ crew took to fisticuffs backstage at the event held at the Civic Center. Jeezy contends that he wasn’t involved in the fracas. “This rap game is just WWF, everybody wants points off somebody else. I got my respect in the streets. I got real respect. I’m not an actor,” Jeezy said.
“I ain’t worried about no other grown man. I’ma continue to make records, continue to make hits, continue to be what I am–legendary. Do they have that on Wikipedia,” he added.
Rick Ross has put his thoughts on the incident on “The Black Bar Mitzvah,” his latest mix tape release, but Jeezy said he’s done with the issue. “I’m not into dissin’. I have no interest in it. As men, I don’t want to have to worry about you tomorrow.”
Jeezy also addressed the verbal diss he received recently from Gucci Mane. Mane had this to say in an interview on Power 105’s Breakfast Club radio show in New York on October 10 about the fight between Ross and Jeezy: “Ross is a friend of mine, of course Jeezy is not, so I don’t care nothin’ about what happened to him.”
Jeezy’s rebuttal: ““I mean, I feel like everybody know that boy retarded, nobody take him seriously. He got an ice cream cone on his face. That being said, I’m not going back. I’m going forward. And then it’s crazy because they’ll call you and want you on songs. And then when you don’t get on a song, that’s what happens.”
